[QUOTE=Tormato;730818]Anahu, Healani, Kewalo, Kalohi, Puunui, Molokai, HES 4857.

I'll pick up the varieties myself, one a day, if someone will pay for the stay and the round trip. ;)[/QUOTE]

I have Molokai seeds. Here are my notes from 2013:

Molokai (RL)- 2013: From Ghana. Small to medium sized plant produces an abundance of smooth, golf ball sized fruit. Taste is lacking. Surprisingly soft and juicy but not much else to recommend.

They are a few years old but should still germinate just fine. PM me your address if you want a few.

Definitely going to bag a few blossoms on my Estler's Mortage Lifter, and Indian Stripe PL. Not too tough to find, but not that easy either,

Through a generous gift, I received seeds for Estler's Mortgage Lifter direct from the granddaughter of the an who created it this year. I will be bagging and saving seeds from it.

I received a similar generous donation. I will be growing them hopefully along side ML seeds I got from Carolyn and my own saved ML seeds. I usually only grow one plant of each variety, but this year I wll be growing more ML to try to verify the quality of my own seeds as well as Carolyn's, and keep it going by obtaining fresh seeds from the grow outs.

I would like to make an observation about a possibility of WHY some of these seeds are hard to find. Maybe it's because no one orders them !!!

Personally I have a site with over 550 varieties listed, including several mentioned in this thread. But I would guess that there are AT LEAST 100 varieties on the list that have never been ordered for the last 3 or more years. As a small company that grows ALL it's own seed, it's hard to continue to grow out fresh seed if no one ever buys it. Even tho I personally like many of the varieties and there was a buzz here about them when I got them, eventually I won't be able to keep growing some of them.
